STEPPIN' THROUGH A TIME ZONE! - 2005
This section celebrates everything Moody Blues through providing an amazing factoid, a Moody myth-busting reality check and a daily question to test your knowledge of the band.
OUR GUESSING GAME - YESTERDAY'S ANSWER
What was the title of Clint Warwick’s only commercial solo release?My Life – The Waltz in 2002.
HAVE YOU HEARD?
Did you know that Graeme Edge was a pioneer in the use of electric drums? In the early seventies, he worked on pads that generated an electric pulse to a sort of synthesizer that reproduced the required sounds.
NO MORE LIES
Myth: Graeme Edge’s famous poems were no longer included on Moody Blues albums after the completion of the ‘Classic 7’ albums. Reality: The poems became a rarity is all. Nothing Changes on Strange Times features Graeme reciting his words; however, there are vocal interludes led by Justin Hayward. In fact, a poem by Graeme was recorded for inclusion on The Other Side of Life but was left off the final track listing, perhaps because it harked back to the earlier days and the sound of the Moody Blues had moved on to be predominantly guitar-led synthesizers.
OUR GUESSING GAME
How many and which groups was John Lodge a member of before joining the Moody Blues?
Come back tomorrow to find out the answer, plus new facts, a new question and another myth busted!
2005 The Montreux Jazz Festival was founded in 1967 and has been held every year since despite the fact that the original venue burned down (during a 1971 Frank Zappa performance no less). Held on the banks of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, it is the second largest jazz festival in the world. Originally it was a pure jazz festival but opened the door to other musical styles in 1970. The Moody Blues performed there in 1991 and the concert was recorded and released in 2005 on DVD. Did you buy the DVD when it was released? What is your opinion of it?
On June 11 this year the Moodies played at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and the performance was recorded. It was released as "The Moody Blues Live, Lovely to See You" on CD in November this year and later on DVD. Did you buy the album and/or the DVD? What did you think of the band's performance there and the quality of the music and video?
Justin returned to his hometown of Swindon this year to give a benefit performance for "BBC In Aid of Children in Need" at "The Apartment". Did you attend the concert? If so, please tell us your story. Here are links for photos and videos of the performance: http://moodybluesattitude.yuku.com/topic/3532#.U4uzwrlOW5d
In November, the Moodies did a signing session at Tower Records in Las Vegas. Did you attend that signing session? What did you have them sign? What did you talk about?

Even though Ray passed the torch I love to see him looking over Norda's shoulder in the DVD.
It's an easy to watch video start to finish.
I would love to see a DVD set of every song they've ever done live including Blue Jays and Justin's solo tours.
